Go Home! Boston Launch

In the collection, Go Home!, published in collaboration with the Asian American Writers’ Workshop and The Feminist Press, writers imagine “home” in the twenty-first century through an array of fiction, memoir, and poetry. Both urgent and meditative, this anthology moves beyond the model-minority myth and showcases the singular intimacies of individuals figuring out what it means to belong.

Editor Rowan Hisayo Buchanan is joined by writers T Kira Madden and Jennifer Tseng at Trident Bookstore for readings from the book. Readings will be followed by a discussion about the project, and the necessity of both expanding and challenging the immigrant narrative.
